Seems that I'm royally shafted on this one. The guidance of section 2.2
Please give details of all absences from the United Kingdom during the last five years states:
Please note: You should also check that you were physically present in the UK 5 years (3
years if you are married to or in civil partnership with a British citizen) before the date that
the application will be received by the UK Border Agency
My official ILR period began in the UK in 06/06/2006 when I came here on WP and granted an ILR on 17/06/2011 and I was planning to send in my application on the 17th of this month.
However, due to business travels, I was away from 03/06/2007 to 10/09/2007 in 2007. Does this mean that I can't send out my application till 10th September? That would be one hell of a turn off
